fats and oils are also seeing " increasingly
fierce competition, " PFI stated.

equipment have been " rising astronomically, "
including manufacturing
components such as valves, motors,

Transportation frustrations
" Systemic factors " have also contributed
to distribution challenges for
pet food and treat producers, PFI reported.

turnover shortages reaching as high
as 15% on a monthly basis, as reported
by PFI members. Additionally,
more than 10% of trucks are failing
to show up to pet food plants on a
daily basis, and a shortage of pallets
is causing disruptions even if a driver
and truck have already been secured.
